Every year I debate homeschooling because I want my kids (and myself) to get to know the kids in our community. I know that for us right now homeschooling is the best choice for my kids. But I struggle to think I should try public school so we can be more connected. We just moved from a terrible SD (inner city style) to a still not great one ratings-wise but better (it’s only ten min from where we were). Kids walk by our home to the bus stop (right by our house) every day...and I just have so much tension with it. We have debated just giving them this great foundation spiritually and academically where they have a love for learning instilled in them...and then sending them at some point. But I just don’t know because I see such benefit to homeschooling too. Our son does homeschool gymnastics and our daughters take a dance class by our home. We go to the library regularly. But we still are pretty limited in who we know near us and the same was the case where we lived before. Any suggestions on how to reconcile this tension?
